Thread: Stalking.... How much gear do you carry?

    Stalking.... How much gear do you carry?

    Hi guys

    I would be interested to know how many stalkers on here venture out without either sticks or a bipod and just use a scoped rifle with a moderator attached, I would think that this minimalistic old school approach would probably only be used by the minority of stalkers these days.

    Many thanks.

    I've been so unsuccessful over the last 12 months I leave most my kit in the car and just carry a knife and disposable gloves on the off chance I actually see a deer let alone get a chance to shoot one. Not sure what is going on but my permissions have all but dried up!

    Lol, but +1

    If you can shoot well without support then why bother taking any. For putting a carcass into the food chain there are minimum standard requirement to be met with regards to hygiene so additional kit may be required depending on ground/species. I won't mention health and safety.

    I carry my shooting sticks, rifle, mod, spare ammo, range finder, gloves and knife. The rest of the kit is left in the car as I feel bulked out enough going through the fields and climbing 5 bar gates.

    I'm toying with taking my .22lr out with me as well as I see other quarry that's not worth taking with the .243 but could do with tidying up whilst out and about. Just need to figure out how to carry two rifles and the gear safely and without looking like Rambo.
